|the rock face at sunset|
Last fall, I was so excited to visit the area again. This time I did feel the wonderful rush of the energy as I stepped out of our rental car in Sedona. I loved visiting the area as a wiser, more attuned and more patient being. The 70's was a time of willful change and this time I allowed things to simply unfold. One day, Hathi and I discovered this lovely state park at around dusk. For awhile, we listened to the flute music of a native man who was leading other travelers on a mystical jeep tour . After they left we stayed and we took our own hike . At dusk, we watched the sky light up with a magnificent sunset. As I was watching, the rock face began changing colors and the shadows began to deepen, and then the face in the rock appeared. The face appeared, in fact it just popped out of the rocky ledge. It was very magical and I will never forget that moment.
